Hi-

 

I have a simple text animator that fades the text on screen. See image attached.

The fade moves to the right, and after the text is on screen for a bit, i want it to reverse the way it appeared. When i keyframe the offset value back to the starting value the fade starts from the left again.

How can I simply reverse the fade direction?

 

Thank you kindly in advance.

You will need two animators with opposite falloff settings.

Copy that, thanks Mylenium. 

 

I assume adding another animator for the opposite falloff settings is the trick?

I think I got it setup like you suggested. 

 

The first set of keyframes bring it on nicely. How can I change the direction of the effect now? - It just reverses which is cool but not exactly what i'm looking for. 

 

I would like to have the 'dissapear' effect go from left to right, so same effect in same direction.  

 

I attached a screen shot of animator keyframes I got setup.
